WalterRoad is starting off with a positive reputation.
Looking for a good mechanic- South Western CT, will travel (Carb'd 86, vacuum, etc)

Does anyone know of a good place to go for carb/vacuum issues in the southwestern CT area, or an hour or two or so distance away? Anybody know of someone who's familiar with the older factory setups, I'm as good as any to swap parts, I'm hoping to find someone who's good with these older vacuum and carb'd setups for some fine tuning. The van is my everyday/everything truck. Any pointers would be appreciated, thanks!

Took my quite a while to come across this, sorry. Didn't want you to think you were being ignored. Unfortunately I don't know anybody around that is great with the older stuff. Hope you were able to find what you were looking for.
